Tuesday, Day Two

In Uncategorized on September 15, 2009 at 6:52 pm

So, if you are  getting back into working out, just starting to workout or new to fitness.

Tuesday may seem like a harder day than Monday.  You may be unmotivated and not want to go to the gym.   You may be sore and moving muscles may be the last thing on your mind. 

Never fear, think positively!  Remember, baby steps.  Today is day two.  Trust me, when you finish Tuesday’s workout, you will feel good about how you stuck to the committment to yourself to workout on Tuesday!

If you have muscle soreness, figure out which areas are sore and avoid that area.  If your legs are sore, work your upper body, arms, shoulders, back, chest abs.  Or, just have a cardio day, just a pilates day, just a day of stretching or meditating.  Again, when you spend 30-60 minutes of activity, it is always better than doing nothing at all!    Whichever activity you choose, when you finish it, pat yourself on the back.  Water never tastes so good after a workout.

Don’t ruin your workout by ingesting a heavy fast food meal.  Think healthy eating.  Healthy does not equate boring! Proteins like fish, eggs, beans, peanut butter, etc.   Whole wheat grains and fresh fruits and vegetables.  Research healthy food sites to see what is good for you and what is much better for you!
